Welcome to Volume 11 of the Rose+Croix Journal!

In this year of the publication of the sixth Rosicrucian manifesto, The New Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz, and the 400th anniversary of the publication of the third Rosicrucian manifesto, the Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz, I am very pleased to present to you the 11th Volume of the Rose+Croix Journal. Since its founding in 2004, the Journal has provided readers and researchers with materials that enlighten, educate, challenge, and inspire.

This year the papers from all volumes of the Journal have been added to the important listing service academia.edu to provide access to a wider audience of scholars.

The Rose+Croix Journal is an international, transdisciplinary, peer-reviewed online journal that focuses on topics that relate to the sciences, history, the arts, mysticism, and spirituality, especially transdisciplinary topics that traverse and lie beyond the limits of different fields of study.

This issue features the following papers:

  • “The Perfect Fifth -- The Science and Alchemy of Sound” by John Beaulieu
  • “The Roots of a Science of Consciousness in Hermetic Alchemy” by Dennis William Hauck
  •  “The Pattern That Connects” by Eleanor MacGregor
  •  “The Use of Virtual Reality as a Meditative Neurotechnology” by Ranjie Singh, Paula Rayo, and K. Nirvana Singh
  • “The Scientific Method and Psi Research” by Patricia Downes, Shelley Higgins, Frank Hutchinson, Allen Jackson, Sara Petty, Othel Rolle, and Ranjie Singh

These papers successfully explore our subject areas and transdisciplinary topics and expand our understanding of the natural laws around us. The abstracts for each of the papers are published in English, French, German, Portuguese, and Spanish.

Also included on the Journal’s website are tools for dissertation searches, research links, archival documents of the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC, and information on how to submit a paper. The submission deadline for the Rose+Croix Journal is February 15 each year, however, authors are encouraged to submit their papers for the peer-review process as soon as they are ready. Both Rosicrucian members and non-members are invited to submit papers for consideration.

If you would like to join our team of volunteers working on the Rose+Croix Journal, please let us know. All areas and levels of expertise are welcome, including reviewers, translators, copy editors, and proofreaders.

“The alchemists sought to actually work with the transcendental powers during meditation to bring the transformative powers from the divine mind directly into their practical work in the lab and their personal work in the inner laboratory of their souls.”
